The Kleine Center for Community Service manages a wide range of engagement opportunities, including volunteer service, charitable activities, and community outreach designed for students, faculty, and staff at Knox College. Each term the Kleine Center holds a day of service to connect the Knox community with our Galesburg community partners. The days are open to all campus and sponsored by the Mary Filosa Brown Endowed Memorial Fund for Community Service.
